PATRYCJA SLAWUTA, M.A, PhD(c)
A native of Poland, Patrycja Slawuta is currently an entrepreneur, teacher, and executive coach, based out of Manhattan.
Patrycja’s research focuses on (ir)rationality, moral emotions and the dynamics of human interactions. She has published her findings in scientific journals as well as presented on various international conferences.
Patrycja’s passion is applying scientific knowledge to the entrepreneurial world. She has co-founded an online Latin America-based company that helps empower and educate women around the issues of shame, guilt and self-esteem.
Patrycja also collaborates with a number of tech start-ups to merge science, art and technology in order to foster personal growth and transformation. She specializes in re-framing fear and limiting beliefs by turning them into powerful confidence and self-worth.
While her business pants are on, she writes frankenstein code that continues to surprise her as it lurches to life. She graduated from college as a 3D artist, and is still unclear how exactly she got from there to here, but it seems to be working out swimmingly.
When the business pants come off, she’s generally found in front of some video game system, though the occasional fishing trip makes her happy.
